Handy for a class set of punctuation rules for classroom use or for students to have a personal copy in their interactive notebooks as a reference. Includes examples and exceptions. Useful for mini-lessons, homework use, student/peer editing, quiz review, semester exam study guide, and writing conferences. Great for any subject-area writing and cross-curricular collaboration. "Do my punctuation errors affect my history paper grade?" Now you can answer, "YES!"
Four pages (2-sided) cover 15 punctuation marks:
apostrophe, brackets, capitalization, colon, comma, dash, ellipsis, end marks, hyphen, italics, numbers, parentheses, quotation marks, semicolon, and slash. Includes 'do not' exceptions to rules--common usage mistakes. B/W for easy photocopying and appealing borders (on every other page) are appropriate for grades 6-9.
Brief but comprehensive rules, clearly explained with helpful examples. A blank lined page for student/teacher additions is included. (There can be frustrating disagreement among style guides and you may have your own preferences.) Teacher tips provided.
See the Preview for a two-page example.
